Southold simplicity

2017. I can't believe it. The start of a new year on the blog and I'm excited to get going. My round up of room favourites for 2016 revealed a shift in my tastes. A shift towards a simplified way of living. A shift away from the gimmicky, the throw away, the quick fix. (I know I'll be tempted though. I'm human after all.) It's not about trends. It never should be. It's about exploring your style but keeping it real. It's about the beauty of being authentic. A lovely of cottage isn't torn down or tarted up to be something it's not. It's respected and lived in. It's about surrounding yourself with the pieces you have collected and cherished over time. It's about your personality settling comfortably into the rooms you inhibit. It's like this home in Southold on Long Island by Jennifer Vaughn Miller of Vaughn Miller Studio. Simply beautiful.

There are so many little touches at work here that make each room look amazing in its own unique way! It's easy to get distracted but the wood theme among the furniture and window/door trimmings ties it all together. Awesome pick!

Every Painting in the rooms collection is awesome and inspiring. I believe every painting has a specific meaning and purpose which is adding more beauty to the rooms.
